BMW 1 Series Gran Turismo Rendered

BMW is looking to base several small cars off of MINI products in the years ahead. The one we ‘ve mentioned on the site numerous times is the BMW 1001 – based off of the next generation MINI hatchback. Another that has had just some passing mentions both here and on MotoringFile is the 1 Series Gran Turismo. Seen here poorly photoshopped via a UK magazine, the 1er GT will be based off of the Countryman platform and will be strictly FWD.

The idea is to create more interior room by doing two things; basing it off of FWD architecture and eliminating the transmission tunnel and raising the roof and belt-line for a semi-command seating position. However if you ‘re in the US don ‘t expect to see any FWD cars wearing the Roundel anytime soon.
